June Holiday Activities 2014

The June Holidays are coming up real soon. For us, Kaitlin will go to childcare as per normal but I might just let her skip a few days so that I could bring her out for some fun activities.

There are lots of workshops and activities happening this June for toddlers and older kids, and you can easily check them out by doing a simple Google search. Below are some of the ones that I thought are pretty interesting and worth checking:

Children's Season 2014


Children's Season by the National Heritage Board is back! We brought Kaitlin to one of the museums last year and she had lots of fun. Definitely thinking of bringing her to visit as many museums as we can this year. You can check here for a full list of programmes. The ones I find particularly interesting are PLAY@NMS and Masak Masak: My Childhood. Both of which are at the National Museum of Singapore and are suited for kids aged 3-7 years old.


Gardens By The Bay



Besides checking out the ongoing French Faire Floral Display, there are also educational programmes for the young ones this June Holidays. Do check out the website if you would like more details as most of them require advanced registration and payment.


KidsSTOP

On 6th June, KidsSTOP will be the first children's science centre catered for children aged between 18 months to 8 years. The themed exhibition zones which encourage kids to learn, experience, discover and dream will surely excite the young ones and get them interested about the world of science.


If heading out is not for you or if you want to avoid the crowds, how about trying some of these fun and simple indoor activities:

1. Ocean Sensory Tub - sensory play with gelatin and ocean animals



2. Ice Cube Play - perfect for a hot, sunny day



3. Mess Free Pour Paint Rockets - all you need are some plastic water bottles and paints


4. Indoor Camping 




5. Spoon Puppets



6. Vegetable and Fruit Stamp Painting




7. Fruit Necklaces - yummy and pretty necklaces that the kids can snack on




8. Cupcake Decorating - minus the oven and batter clean-up




9. Bubble Wrap Stomp Painting




10. Marshmallow Building - toothpicks and marshmallows and endless possibilites




If you've already tried out the activities above with the kids, don't worry as there are lots more ideas for indoor activities on Pinterest. Hope this post helps out with your June Holiday planning for your kids :) Have a blast!
